Updated for the 2014 Tax Year (2015 Tax Season)

One of the most pressing questions in the life of an early tax filer – when can I expect my tax refund to come? Before e-filing, this was always difficult to predict. First, you mail in your return. Then someone inputs all your information (and later, computers scanned in your information), then the Treasury had to issue a check, which was then mailed to you. Now, with a free IRS e-file, you can get your refund in as little as 8 days from when you file, if you elect for direct deposit.

For 9 out of 10 taxpayers, the IRS issued refunds in less than 21 days from the date the return was received last year.

For the 2015 tax filing season, the IRS announced that it will start accepting eFile and paper returns on January 20, 2015. You can find the press release here.

Great news! The IRS have begin testing for the upcoming Tax Season 2015.

2015 Tax Season is expected to be the worst yet for tax filers.

The Internal Revenue Service is gearing up to be hated even more than usual due to a “miserable” 2015 tax season, the agency’s commissioner warned. That’s because of a lack of funding from Congress combined with increased responsibilities.

The 2015 tax filing season “will be one of the most complicated filing seasons we’ve ever had,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen warned at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) National Tax Conference in Washington, DC Thursday. “All we can do is try to maximize our services as well as we can; as well as we can is still going to be miserable. You really do get what you pay for.”

Koskinen followed National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson ‒ who’s been in that role since 2001 ‒ at the conference. And she was even gloomier with her predictions.

“The [2015 tax season] is going to be the worst filing season since I’ve been the national taxpayer advocate; I’d love to be proved wrong, but I think it will rival the 1985 filing season when returns disappeared,” she told the audience of tax practitioners, according to Forbes.
